tv FOX and Friends Sunday FOX News April 26, 2020 3:00am-7:00am PDT
pete: we begin this sunday morning with a fox news alert. president trump urging americans to use common sense. as more states begin to ease restrictions. the president tweeting this, remember, the cure cannot be worse than the problem itself. be careful, be safe and use common sense. the white house is making plans to reopen national parks as jason talked about yesterday and the nba reportedly set to reopen practice facilities in states with looser restrictions. they're looking to follow what the president has laid out and what states are doing as they open individual practices in some facilities. with that we bring you in this sunday morning to "fox & friends." right now i'm only joined by my
good friend jason chaffetz out in utah i should acknowledge we will soon be joined the dr. nicole saphier, the smarter of the two of us, no doubt about that, she is having technical issues. as soon as see is ready she will be in. jason great to have you. jason: i love being with you, pete. i was looking forward to being with dr. saphier, i'm sure she will join us soon. i have a great lineup. weapon have trey gowdy coming on. i was a colleague of
his for number of years, when i get up up in the morning, i'm ready to go. trey gowdy, not so much. it will take a little while, he will be here later in the show. pete: we'll test his skills. we look forward to nicole joining us. a lot what we're talking about, jason how quickly do we open while balancing what our health
care experts say we should continue to do. we'll move forward with states preparing to ease these restrictions. colorado stay-at-home order is expiring today, sunday. rallies are happening across the country to reopen. let's get a sense. here we are about to head into may after weeks of stay-at-home orders. here are states set to ease restrictions this week. we'll learn a lot, jason. some things looksenned, outpatient procedures and hospitals have struggling. retail stores not open while the big guys are.
child care which may allow people to go to work. places of worship. outdoor activities with national parks. restaurant, dining rooms, certainly with different measures. jason, when you look at the map, the president said we want to be open for business. we got to use common sense, a portion of the country this week will be jumping into that
exercise. jason: you know a lot of focus has been on georgia and some republican-controlled states a lot of negative stories and attacks on governor kemp in georgia and critical eyes on texas, what not. i tell you they don't give that same critical eye to places like colorado, run by jared polis, governor there total different standard. at the end of the day, pete, i'm sure dr. saphier will back this up, no matter what the regulations are, if you don't wash your hands, wear a facemask when you go out to help protect others, keep social distancing, we'll see numbers go up. i'm glad we're getting the country opened up as fast as possible but it comes down to personal responsibility. if you don't want to open up your business, hey, don't open up your business, but don't, make sure that somebody else is suppressed, if you are going to do it, let's all be responsible.
hopefully the covid-19 numbers, hospitalization numbers, certainly death numbers, hopefully they stay depressed and down, start to decline. pete: everyone has a eye preventing a second wave. we saw beaches in california full of people. people were out and about on east coast. it was beautiful day. people will get out. scientists say, sunlight, heat, humidity, is good in battling this. here are images from newport beach california yesterday. if you're not healthy, you're vulnerable, you shouldn't be out, or go back out take in some sunshine. if you're a young family with kids, now a great time to get out to be responsible, take that choice, make that choice. but experts are still weighing in, jason. one is peter navarro, director of trade and manufacturing policy. he talked about the safety on the health side, how critical that is, but also the economic
disruption we faced, businesses that have been closed, livelihoods set back had a big disruption that can also kill, listen. >> we know for a fact that the virus killing directly. we know it is doing tremendous economic damage, but the more sub sell problem which is a serious problem that comes into the cam cuelous, neil, is that the fact that economic disruptions kill as well. my point is that there's health concerns whether you open the economy or not. in other words the virus kills directly but it also kills indirectly when we destroy our economy. suicides, drug overdoses. all of that. so that's what we're grappling with. pete: jason there is virtue in work, people feeling fulfilled, providing for their families. when that is not there, there is a big void. jason: people across the economic spectrum who are really
suffering. we have restaurant workers. two out of every three restaurant workers has been laid off. on the other end of the spectrum you have medical professionals whether they be dentists or orthodontists or running mri, or they're working on breast cancer, those types of things, these have been deemed in part elective, yet, you now start to see these medical procedures, which may harm somebody else millionly, those are finally going to be opened up. as peter navarro said, we also need to get after manufacturing, keep this country going again. pete: oh, boy, with an eye where this started in wuhan and the communist chinese who unleashed this on the world, in this reopening there is a chance to reexamine our priorities with a focus on local and american-made. domestic manufacturing, certainly a big part of it. jason, i know yesterday, while many at home with their family, many were still protesting. still protests across the country.
just a brief is are. when i read a list i get people reaching out say you missed my town. fort myers, florida, el paso, texas, austin, texas, elco, nevada, springfield, illinois, jackson, mississippi. a friend of mine in new jersey certainty a video of a boat parade near sea bright, new jersey a fisherman and others can't to get back to work, people are adamant, this health crisis needs to be moved past. let us make that choice. that we'll continue to cover these, because it is an important part of the american fabric. people are itching to be out there. jason: yeah, no. clearly we'll later on in the show, we have stories about some towns, turning off water, doing silly things like that. you still have constitutional rights even if there is it a virus. the other thing, pete, going on, there is still political news. garrett tenney has update for us
i think it is important to hear. i want to introduce and bring in garrett tenney. pete: story you're not hearing anywhere else, i wonder why? joe biden accuser tara reade slamming the news. garrett tierney joins us live in arlington, virginia, with the interview. garrett, good morning. reporter: good morning. tara tara reade came forward with a story a month ago. former biden staffer tells fox news i think it is shocking this much time has passed he is an actual nominee for president they are not asking questions. so that tells me there may be a political agenda behind that. and that is gross. i'm a survivor. i would like the question asked. reapde joe biden sexually
assaulted here back in 19939. she called her mom to tell her about the whole thing. this past friday night a clip surfaced a anonymous california rest dent calling into larry king's live back in 1993 alluding to such an incident. reade confirmed to fox news that caller was her late mother. >> i wonder what a staff do besides go to the press in washington. my daughter left there working with prominent senator. couldn't get her problems resolved at all and she chose not to go to the press out of respect for him. >> had a story to tell out of respect for person she worked for didn't tell it? >> that's true. reporter: reade believes there is clear double standard. if this were donald trump would they treat it the same way? if this were brett kavanaugh, did they treat it the same way?
is politics and political agenda playing a role in objective reporting and asking the question. the biden campaign fiercely denied algations a former top advisor to hillary clinton is calling on the presumptive nominee to drop out of the race. tweeting in part, difficult thread, biden should withdraw. i respect the will of the voters, new information emerged supporting tara reade's account being sexually assaulted by joe widen. credible rape accusations are disqualifying oral we have no moral standards. we lose all moral authority if we embrace the lesser of two accused rapists. earlier this meant she filed a criminal complaint in d.c. and again the biden campaign strongly deny these allegations saying this alleged incident simply never happened. back to y'all. pete: garrett, thank you very much. jason i have to go to you, so many people, the glaring, what sticks out to them the double
standard of brett kavanaugh. tara reade said it herself in the interview. jason: tara reade is not a trump supporter. here she is a viable claim, time-stamped with her mother asking larry king on that program back in the '90s. think of all the thousands, literally thousands of stories about justice kavanaugh? i think what rubs her wrong, really what is wrong with this whole story is that the biden campaign is responding but joe biden himself has not responded. when he has been interviewed by some of the biggest names in television, from george stephanopoulos, to anderson cooper, they don't even ask him the question. i can't believe that here you have a credible person who did work there and they don't actually ask the vice president when they have him on camera. pete: they don't even ask, democrats would not ask fellow democrats that question. by the way these clips of larry king live, this episode
holiday. senator lindsey graham does believe he's dead. >> i would be shocked if he is not dead or in some incapacitated state because you don't let rumors like this go forever, go unanswered in a closed society which is really a cult. pete: yes, north korea did not reveal the death of kim jong-il, the father, you remember, until four days later. we'll update you if we hear anything. foreign advisor to south korea's president claims the leader is alive and well. we'll see. >> pope is praying for funeral homeworkers dealing with cron crone during a saturday mass. he singled out the hardship of funeral homeworkers overwhelmed by pope francis also says he prays for the pandemic to end soon and hopes humanity will come out of this with a better sense of solidarity and caring. in a final headline the
nfl's first ever draft coming to successful but not without a shocking trade. san francisco 49ers trade for the washington redskins lineman trent williams, their own all-star joe staley. announcing his retirement. mean while georgia qb jake fromm. selected by buffalo bills, going from projected first round pick to round 5. roger goodell supporting a t-shirt on the final day, cupcakes snack of choice. raising more than $100 million for coronavirus relief. i'm still not sold on kirk cousins, jason. i was hoping we would take fromm. what is your take? i know you're watching. jason: excited utah state's jared love going to the packers. that is great player from utah. pete: great franchise i hate to say it. "chicago tribune" is taking a stand against illinois leaders looking for federal bailout.

♪. jason: the illinois state senate facing backlash for requesting a whopping $41.6 billion federal bailout, as the state's financial troubles continue to grow amid the coronavirus outbreak. "the chicago tribune" editorial board calling the request shameless and dishonest. our next guest agrees. saying liberal policies are ruining is had state. joining america first national spokesperson steve cortez. steve, thank you so much for joining us. this really is grotesque. for the illinois state senate to request $41 billion from us federal taxpayers to bail them out, not just for coronavirus but for a whole lot more. >> right.
shameless is really the watchword unfortunately. and the politicians that are ruining this city of chicago and state of illinois, they believe in this moment of crisis, they found a beard, a way to mask what is a financial disaster in the state, included in the 40 billion jason, they asked for $10 billion just to bail out the unfunded pension obligations. those existed well before the virus ever hit in the united states including illinois. here is the real issue. it is the spending by state of illinois, particularly comes to employees and pension obligations. right now in illinois, according to open the books, we have 100,000 employees or retirees are making $100,000 plus in this state. to give you one particularly engreen just example, park forest, illinois, where i grew up, my hometown, a blue suburb of chicago, just retired superintendent of elementary
schools, joyce made $400,000 in the final years, and will make $300,000 for the rest of her life. in a blue-collar community where the average home price is only $75,000. that reckless spending made illinois's into america's greece and debt and financial woes without the sunshine and islands, unfortunately, jason. jason: look, here is what "the chicago tribune" said, and i quote, it is not surprising in illinois politician finally put in writing what economists and financial watchdogs have been warning for years, that elected officials who failed to take seriously decades of fiscal warning bells in the state eventually would seek a bailout from the federal government. what is beyond galling is using the coronavirus as an excuse. i got to tell you, when i was in congress a few years, we highlighted this because unfortunately it is not just illinois. you have places like phoenix, arizona, california, new jersey, who you're right, it is a
multitrillion dollar problem where they promised all of these retirement benefits but they haven't got the money to actually pay them. >> right. jason, look, i think it it is clear that these democrat-led states they are banking on, hoping for a federal bailout. they believe in donald trump were to loose in november which is not going to happen, if they believe that would happen, eventually flip the senate, the federal government would federalize all these problems from the profligate blue states. none of that is going to happen. what will happen, should happen, what speaker, excuse me, leader mcconnell said he articulated we need to change federal laws and federal policies to allow bankruptcies for states like illinois that is the only reasonable solution. jason: they will have to deal with it, because it is a multitrillion dollar problem. the federal government can print money, but states, counties, cities, they can't. state thank you for the expertise for joining us early
this morning. we appreciate it. >> thank you. jason: still ahead, heart vair university responds after one professor, get this, calls for a ban on homeschooling because it gives parents too much authority. what the school is doing and the impact it could have on the future of education in america. coming up next. your family's story is waiting to be shared. at ancestry.com i'm a talking dog. the other issue. oh... i'm scratching like crazy. you've got some allergic itch with skin inflammation. apoquel can work on that itch in as little as 4 hours, whether it's a new or chronic problem.
and apoquel's treated over 7 million dogs. nice. and... the talking dog thing? is it bothering you? no... itching like a dog is bothering me. until dogs can speak for themselves, you have to. when allergic itch is a problem, ask for apoquel. apoquel is for the control of itch associated with allergic dermatitis and the control of atopic dermatitis in dogs. do not use apoquel in dogs less than 12 months old or those with serious infections. apoquel may increase the chance of developing serious infections and may cause existing parasitic skin infestations or pre-existing cancers to worsen. do not use in breeding, pregnant, or lactating dogs. most common side effects are vomiting and diarrhea. feeling better? i'm speechless. thanks for the apoquel. awww. that's what friends are for. ask your veterinarian for apoquel. next to you, apoquel is a dog's best friend.
♪. jason: some quick headlines. the military academy at west point will have a graduation ceremony this june. roughly 1000 cadets are expected to return to campus for the ceremony. after leaving last month due to the coronavirus pandemic. president trump has confirmed he will speak at the event. plus the air force thunderbirds and navy blue angels will fly over three states tuesday this is going to
be good. the salute to front-line workers. the hon nary fly over will start in new york city, then head to trenton, you in -- new jersey and end up in philadelphia. pete? pete? pete: very cool, jason. on line learning and homeschooling become the new normal so is the future of american education virtual, how will it change? and could the shift change our education system for the better. is it giving parents the opportunity to look under the textbooks? here is laurie who homeschooled all five of her children and rebecca freed distribution, a former public school teacher who sued california public education system. laurie, i want to start with you. parents became accidental teachers. what are they seeing and how should they think about their education differently? >> you know, petes, parents are
seeing exactly what we tried to sound the alarm about, that the children are being battered with propaganda, anti-american, anti-christian propaganda and anti-american content in public schools. this is important. a number of parents are opting out of public school education as a result of this. so this is the silver lining in the cloud of this pandemic that has happened. it is exposing, it is the greatest thing that could have happened to parents, to expose the content being peddled to their children by outrageous professors like elizabeth at harvard university. pete: we'll get to that as well. they say homeschool something terrible. not even just professors, rebecca, fourth graders. i have kids at school. you open up the textbooks, cannot do their math. this common core stuff. what should parents looking for as they are doing homework with the kids and think about
education for them? >> i can't agree more that we are in the middle of a silver lining. parents are looking for options and she's right, they're seeing that the kids have not been learning very much in america's public schools. so what can we do? we have a lot of options. the sky's the limit for us. and you know, i just like to look back into our glory days here in america before labor unions and special interests came into our schools and truly undermined an elite education system and started indoctrinating students. our schools were the envy of the world in those days. do you know americans were so well-educated and guess how we were educated? we were a nation of homeschoolers. we had small, private, primary schools and private universities, small independent schools. let's do that again. let's empower families. 78% of parents in the latest poll support educational freedom.
let's give them that educational freedom and see what they will do with it, see what other innovations they come up with, great things for our kids. pete: a great point. think about how much time and money you spend thinking about the next vacation or next car you will buy, yet we reflexively send our kids to government schools and hope they come out okay. what is your advice to parents? maybe i have a good school district. i think that is where i want my kids to go. i think i have another option. what do you say to them? >> pete, parents don't realize, they think we came from one of the top-rated school districts in the country. parents have no idea that their children are being used as propaganda guinea pigs. what we're encouraging parents to do, contact us at intoe foe @p.j. n.org, settings up homeschooling for the children this is the way we take america back. president trump is trying to make america great again. it is up to us, we the people,
to take this next generation and prepare them to, to operate in a global society not from the values that the left are trying to push on our children. from the traditional judeo-christian principles that our nation was founded upon, that it is being stripped from our children's education, k-12 today. pete: abraham lincoln once said the philosophy of the schoolroom in one generation becomes the philosophy of government in the next. that is a lot of what we see. rebecca, real quick. i have to get your take. harvard professor said homeschooling is bad and it creates authoritarian tendency for parents. some students are hosting a conference to push back on that who were homeschooled. react to that. >> hey, i'm cheering for those kids, on their side 100%. i read professor bartlet's 80-page article against homeschooling and it is
disturbing. you know, why are these folks so rabid against homeschooling? it is because labor unions want to keep their pockets, their hands in the pockets of teachers and they want to push a radical leftist agenda. professor bartlet was totally out of line. she said homeschool something a threat to children and society. our american founders told us the exact opposite. they said the way to keep a free republic is well-educated and moral citizenry. whom schoolers deliver both of those essentials but our public schools do not. so it is essential that we stand with these kids. stand against this -- pete: rebecca, laurie, thank you so much. i hope parents are paying attention. look at what you're kids are learning and look at options you have. thank you both very much. >> thank you. pete: joe biden may have the most democrat delegates but he doesn't have the nomination yet.
many had been struggling under a watch of regulations. some captains came to have applied for ppp loans but have not received any money. pete: nicole, thank you very much. jason: dr. saphier, glad you're with us, glad you're joining us. >> i mean, i'm a doctor, not an i.t. person. pete: that's true. listen i've been once actually late for the show. don't tell anybody that. you were not late. you were here on time. technical issues happen. we're glad you are here. we've been craving your expertise because you know, jason and i, we just talk. nicole: i miss you guys. definitely missing the couch a little bit this morning but this is, yeah it will be a good show. come on, guys. pete: absolutely. great that you're here. settle in, you will take it here for this segment. jason: thank you. we'll be more about the coronavirus but we want to talk a little bit of politics because
in an exclusive interview with fox news, the woman accusing joe biden of sexual assault blasting the media for their silence. tara reade, a former staffer for then senator biden, saying it is shocking this, much time has passed, that he is an actual nominee for president and they're not asking the questions. if this were donald trump would they treat it the same way in if this were brett kavanaugh, dud they treat it the same way? in other words, it is politics and political agenda playing a role in objective reporting and asking the questions. here to discuss this is the former social justice director of bernie sanders 2016 campaign, tezlyn figaro and gop strategist, joseph pinon. thank you both for being here. tesla, i want to ask you, is the media being fair about this, being fair to those involved and engaged in the campaign because tara reade is making quite a point here? >> of course they're not being
fair around it is absolutely expected but it is not just the media, it is pastors, the politicians and even senator bernie sanders. when i say i believe in social justice that also includes him. he deserves to be blasted as well it was senator bernie sanders said he signed the '94 crime bill because of the violence against women's act. tara is a woman, she is alleging violence. senator sanders said he started a revolution. senator sanders would go against the status quo. now he is saying joe biden is his friend. this is not the media, hypocrisy across the board. kettle calling the pot black. it is an issue. senator sanders supporters are extremely disappointed in his leadership. he doesn't get a pass on it as well as anyone else who has been obviously covering up this story for their own bias. jason: joseph, one of the challenges her, there is very serious allegation, it comes with a time stamp.
the mother called into the cnn show with larry king a long time ago but it is time-stamped. yet now joe biden is in front of other serious, supposedly serious reporters, they don't even ask him the question. >> look i think this is, another case of democrats not practicing what they preach. we know the old saying that women are to be believed, i think the fine print to that, unless they're the establishment's preferred candidate to be president of the united states. so i think you would hope, that you know, the outrage we're seeing on the left would be kicking into high gear saying we have to actually look at the credibility of this story and actually make a determination what happened here. as i think i told one of your producers a simple google search would say that is not occurring. time and time again is good for the goose is never good for the gander when democrats wanting to indoctrinate americans on their policies and alienate the american people and ignore them when it seems fit.
jason: one of the side stories, google play, if you search the cnn story, that clip is not there, from larry king. we'll see how that sorts itself out. tezlyn, real quickly, i have to ask you, bernie sanders very quickly endorsed joe biden but i got a tell you a lot of far left, socialist-leaning types of people, they're not necessarily too keen on this, are they? >> of course not. several people called out senator sanders. there are still a few who are apologists for him, he had to do what he had to do but the bottom line, senator sanders people feel misled and feel bamboozled. they feels a if they have been hoodwinked. will you continue to fold like a napkin or stand up with a backbone for millions, of millions of people given you $3 last five years believing in this revolution? he can certainly be joe biden's friend and support the dem the i can't think nominee but completely unacceptable, senator bernie sanders to pretend he is
not watching what is going on as well. jason: tezlyn, joseph, thank you for being here. we have to keep going. thank you for being here. this story ain't going away around we hope we have you back. >> thank you. jason: we have headlines, pete, turn it over to you. pete: turn to those headlines, british prime minister boris johnson expecting to return to work tomorrow after recovering from covid-19. johnson was released from the hospital two weeks ago. he was in icu for several days. the prime minister is under pressure to reopen the economy. the nation is under lockdown until at least may 7th. a slow-speed chase coming to a dramatic end. watch this the dui suspect taking off after being stopped for reckless driving. at one point the car runs over spike trips and drags it for over an hour. the driver even waving to others during the two-hour long per suit, which doesn't seem to be going that fast right there. the chase ending with a pit
move. there you have it, right there the driver surrendering, to officers. maintenance worker in florida calling 911 after a young girl put a help sign in the window. deputies finding a 10-year-old girl struggling with math homework. they understand the young girl's frustration. one officer gave her his personal cell phone to help work on her homework and avoid another 911 incident. and those are your headlines. math can be tough, dr. saphier. nicole: i mean i do have three kids right now distance learning from home. so i do understand. i should take my sign out of the window saying i need help with homeschooling them. pete: you're the one with the sign. jason: that was very, very cute. we got some big numbers. she needs help with that but we have some big numbers, because it is getting hot out there. rick reichmuth, give us an
update. rick: you can tell you're in utah, not on the eastern part of the country, people are begging for a little hot and we got nothing going. take a look at the map. we'll show you what is going on, guys. temperaturewise, where all the west is, all the heat. good news for you in florida, the tail end of this front, this storm that brought all the severe weather last couple days moved from florida. that has cooled temperatures down a almost bit. temps will be five to eight degrees cooler. it will feel really nice. ohio valley, back towards parts of western great lakes we'll be watching really slow moving rainmaker. also will be a snow maker across higher elevations. we have pretty big rain. watch what happens this week. another storm moves across parts of the northeast. we get, so you see what is happening this week, big rain across parts of the ohio valley. nothing out west where you are. heat will continue out across parts of the west.
back to you. pete: rick, thank you very much. appreciate it. coming up while some nursing home are directed to take covid-19 patients, families who lost loved ones from these facilities are demanding answers. we'll hear from a lawyer next. and we'll be here to serve you for a hundred more. ♪ i don't have to worry about athat, do i?are irritated. you for a hundred more. harmful bacteria lurk just below the gum line. crest gum detoxify, voted product of the year. it works below the gum line to neutralize harmful plaque bacteria and help reverse early gum damage. gum detoxify, from crest.
nicole: nursing homes, long-term care facilities across the country are linked to more than 20% of all coronavirus deaths in the u.s. some nursing homes have been directed to admit or readmit diagnosed patients. new york reportedly denied one nursing home from sending suspected covid-19s patients to the javid center, usns comfort, both which had beds available. pete: instead went to a nursing home. in kansas. jason: she passed away at the riverbend post acute nursing home. his family is suing the facility for negligence and lack of
transparency. joining to us share their story, the family's lawyer, rachel staley. thanks for being here. sorry about the loss, it raises a larger question, are the most vulnerable being protected in these nursing homes? >> thank you for having me today. this is a very distressing situation and the fact of the matter is riverbend in our specific case was not following rules to prevent covid-19 from entering its facility. there is a concern that our most vulnerable are not being protected. nicole: rachel, so in the past we've seen there have been problems with nursing homes, specifically times of crisis such as hurricanes much not following protocols that would potentially otherwise keep patients safe. you think in this instance, there is also a bigger problem, meaning the state legislators were actually directing nursing homes they had to take the cove individual 19 patients? >> i have not seen evidence of
that in our area. this is not like new york where there is a call out for distress going to, there is no particular evidence that they are requiring nursing homes in our area to take those patients. pete: you're saying simply put, you want the proper protocols in place because we know precisely who the most vulnerable are. you can see though, why how it is, rachel, how it is mind-boggling to people here on the east coast, in the middle of this crisis you would direct nursing homes to take patients that have covid-19, knowing how the spread can happen there, rather than separate and segregate. do you feel like the proper segregation happened once they realized covid-19 was in that facility? >> no, i do not. there is evidence that that did not happen. particularly after there were known covid cases at this
facility. residents were still dining together. physical therapy gym was still open and being used. nicole: looks like they weren't taking the proper, necessary measures to keep everybody socially distanced even though they're in the same community, they were not actually kept six feet apart and still having the social gathers which promulgated the spread of the virus. >> that is correct. there were rules in place riverbend did not follow on top of the social distancing. they were not following the proper rules for screening. pete: rachel, thank you for being here. we reached out to riverbend post acute rehabilitation center. they declined to comment. dr. nicole, i would love to hear your thoughts how new york and new jersey handled this as well. we'll get to that later in the program. technology playing a major role in the crisis from keeping us connected to help us those on the front lines.
pete: welcome back. people are turning to tech more than ever as they follow stay-at-home orders. some tech companies saw a way to help during the crisis and took an initiative to help health care and essential workers on the front line. here to highlight the unsung tech heroes of the pandemic, curt "the cyber guy." good morning. what do you have for us? >> pete, i will tell you they don't get the attention they deserve but unsung tech heroes that are on the front lines of the covid fight we really got to recognize this morning, including one l-3 harris, big giant defense contractor and defense contractor communications company. they asked what can we do?
they decided to make an app, free, somebody works at hospital, nurse, doctor, administrate to be, they want to know about this, it connects up a radio to an app, it is encrypted, secure and hooks up everybody at the emergency response not only at the hospital but with emts, city and emergency leaders t has pa great amount. this thing would usually be, i can only imagine thousands of dollars. they're giving it away for free to hospitals and people on the front line working that emergency response. way cool. beon very brilliant way to be hero. pete: connecting is critical at moment like this. >> yay. these two guys would have an app like a review for yelp but personally thank somebody, offer praise and reward for that phrase. they turned it this toward the front line workers f you wanted to download the merci app, we
have all the links online, you download this, specifically say it is you, thanking that very specific person. the app does the work for you, connects up with leadership of that organization, be ought hospital, you're thanking a news or could be front line worker, a checker at the grocery store. they get recognized. they also have a reward system built into it. a very smart way to just pivot on technology. pete: very cool. very briefly, kurt, little time when you need to, facebook, an app that they're using? >> facebook, i've been critical of them in the past this page here has been enormous help. if you go here, got something to offer or need assistance, we'll link this as well, john on facebook, if anyone can help deliver produce, he wants some help. lisa looking for a mask. she has got extras. really a smart way to put a community together. when you log on in your area, your people will show up there from your community.

♪. jason: this is a fox news alert. the president trump urging americans who use common sense as more states begin to ease restrictions. nicole: the president tweeting, remember the cure can't be worse than the problem itself. be careful, be safe and use common sense. pete: common sense. the white house is making plans to reopen national parks and the nba is reportedly set to reopen practice facilities in states with looser restrictions. we bring you in on this 7:00 eastern time edition of, did i say saturday? no, i said 7:00. it is the sunday edition of "fox & friends." great to be here with jason
chaffetz and dr. nicole saphier. doctor, thanks for joining us this morning. >> absolutely. happy to be here, guys. pete: jason, how are things in utah? jason: fired up, ready to go. i'm worried we have trey gowdy coming in later. i got to make sure he gets up. because he is not exactly a morning person. i will get him here. pete: you will get him to go in anybody can. doctor, i can't wait to get your take. states are ready to ease restrictions this week. colorado stay-at-home order expires today. local economies are looking to reopen. doctor, here are a few of the states that will be easing restriction this is week. we're seeing certain things over the course of these states and over time. outpatient procedures, retail stores, some child care services, places of worship, outdoor activities. some even restaurants and dining rooms in certain states at certain times. how do you feel like the reopening is going? is it going at the right pace, doctor? nicole: well you know i think, i
like seeing that it is not one size fits all with the country. seeing different states opening up at different times. the bottom line i think we're learning stay-at-home orders, if you're talking about being safe at home, some people are not safe at home because of the rising unemployment, because of indirect consequences of many people staying at home. maybe we need to do safer at home orders, meaning you start letting some people get out a little bit especially in a lot of the states you're showing. there are a lot of rural areas that naturally social distance. it is hurting them more staying at home than maybe new york or new jersey than where we are, pete. i like the slow rollout and that it is gradual. in some of the states, certain counties are doing their own rollouts. some are extending social distance measures, some are not. i think it is very important that they do it from a very individual. they look at the demographics, they look at their risk, they're making those decisions. because you have to know, every state, every county is very
different. you have significantly fewer hospital beds per capita in certain counties of certain states than you do elsewhere in the country. there are a lot of issues you have to really look at before you start lifting some of these orders. i think they're doing them smartly. i think people listen to public health officials. they also listen to economic advisors. i'm looking for maria bartiromo coming on later today, because she really has her finger on the pulse of this. reporter: absolutely. jason you talked-about personnal responsibility even within states. upstate new york is very, very different than new york city. jason: well, you see montana, colorado, idaho, easing restrictions. i think you're right. this idea that look, you have got to wash your hand, you have got to be still socially distance themselves. i'm glad to see late last night the interior secretary tweeting that he is going to actually comply with president trump's request to open up our national parks. there reason you can't get outside with your family,
socially distance, be responsible. where i'm sitting here in utah, within six hours there are nine national parks. they're all closed. that is ridiculous. that is nothing based in science. one of the things should also open is the united states congress because they're not doing their job. my former colleague, minority leader in the house of representatives. listen to what kevin mccarthy says about that. >> federal government has spent more than hundred billion dollars. we have the responsibility to help states for those things that affected covid and we have. what we really need to do, find a way not only open up the states in a healthy manner, and every state is different, so you follow the directions and won't open it all at once but we need to open all other central things like congress. i sent a letter to speaker pelosi this week. instead of finding a way to have proxies, holds everybody's vote in poxket, start committees and work on things we need to.
pete: if you're not willing to work in a crisis maybe you're not that essential at all, jason. get your take. jason: well -- pete: go ahead, jason, comment. jason: congress, the house of relationships is not due to go back to work until may 8th. the senate is not reconvening until may 4th. postal workers are out there doing their job. how many people, truckers are doing their job. health care workers are doing their job. congress is still in recess! nicole: jason, don't forget, really easy to sit back to say to people, you need to stay home, you're non-essential, you need to forego any income while they're still receiving income. anybody receiving a paycheck should not be able to tell people not receiving a paycheck they can't go to work. that is absolutely is wrong. pete: such a great point. i think we're a product much a new york city story, tri-state area story, some obsession what is happening here. we're a massive country. at the same time, this is a story of people with second homes who make a lot of money
telling people who maybe are living paycheck to paycheck, whether or not they can reopen their business or not, which is a very, very real challenge. when you have an easy income coming in, it is easy to say stay at home. when that is not the case it becomes a lot more critical that these businesses reopen. we're hearing more from the small business administration, could be taking new loan applications, the ppp program as soon as tomorrow. guys, get this, 13 of the public companies are now giving back 170 million in the stimulus, money. jason, seems some big guys got their hands in the pot when it was supposed to be going to small business. jason: what was not initially out there is that the funds, where they're going is actually going to become public information. and so i think a lot of these corporations, big and small are starting to realize, wait a sec, they bill be able to look back to see why we took money. why did we justify how much money. they're giving it a second
thought. if you're a big corporation, you can handle, weather the storm, hats off to them but they also figured out it would be public and not so private. nicole: yeah. well, i mean, you know, you're much easier to do things behind the back of other people but when it will become public knowledge, all of sudden your entire marketing campaign will explode because it looks bad. it makes for really bad optics if you are a very big company, able to carry your employees. you're now taking government funding, having all these real mom-and-pop small businesses close everywhere across the country. it really makes for bad optics. so glad to see that they stepped up, like they should have done in the beginning and they returned the money. pete: may have been the transparency. may have been the bad headlines got them to step up. we'll take what we can get at this point. doctor, i have to get your take on this. dr. deborah birx, who has been
front and center in briefings was on "watters' world," and talked about the hospitalizations, deaths, decreases, what it might mean. get your reaction. watch. >> the vice president said the other day, memorial day, basically in a month, we will have turned the corner on this virus and we'll be in a much, much better place. is that your assumption as well? >> we believe that both the hospitalizations, icu need and frankly the number of people who have succumbed to this disease will be dramatically decreased by the end of may. pete: doctor, is that the trajectory you're seeing as well? nicole: well i mean i'm hoping that we'll continue on the current trajectory right now. we're already seeing decreased hospitalizations, decreased need for icus and even decreased deaths across the nation. yes, a month from now, gearing up to celebrate memorial day, i think we'll be even better, warmer weather, you will be able
to, i think we're in a much better position, i i want to say that with air of caution because we don't want to just, we don't want to go backwards from all the efforts that we've done so far. people, we have seen pictures of people going out to beaches right now. i want everybody to get outside, i warrant people to get back to some level of normalcy. we want to make sure we're doing it in a smart way. that doesn't mean we can all get back together in large gatherings, celebrate, the truth is the virus will still be in the community. we want to make sure we decrease spread. memorial day will be a day of celebration. i think we're already getting there i'm very much more optimistic today than i was last week, than i was a month ago. i think we'll only get better from here. jason: that's great. pete: we're in violent agreement. i am glad you touched on the beaches because i see those pictures, pictures, and i'm excited.
you see the few groups of people. it is mostly young people, families, people who are vulnerable are avoiding it. this is a good sign as long as people be responsible. where leaders take the accountability, take the step to open back up, you have a chance to revive the country in a moment, heading into summer, warmer weather. doctor, we heard that has impact on virus. heat, humidity, sunlight. all of those things combined could get us to a point, if there is a second wave if there is something again in the fall, we're at least prepared for it and responsible as we combat it. nicole: listen, pete, going outside, being amongst friend, albeit still trying to keep distance is really good for mental health as well. we have don't want to necessarily talk about physical health when it comes to covid-19, we have to take mental health as well. that means economic stability and social connectivity and all of these things are equally
important as trying not to get virus infection. pete: big time. well-said. we have national headlines. we're glad you're joining us. the woman accusing joe biden of sexual assault blasting the media over its silence in a fox news exclusive. formerren staffer tara reade, it is shocking that this much time has passed and he is an actual nominee for president and they're not asking the question. if this were donald trump, would they treat it the same way? well, if this were brett kavanaugh, did they treat it the same way? in other words, it's politics and political agenda playing a role in objective reporting and asking the questions. reade claims joe biden sexually assaulted her back in 1993 while working in his senate office. after the assault she called her mom to teller about the whole thing. on friday night a clip surfaced of anonymous california resident calling in for larry king live alluding to the incident which
reade confirms to fox news was her late mother, watch. >> wondering what a staffer would do besides go to the press in washington? my daughter just left there after working for a prominent senator around could not get through with her problems at all. only thing she could have done was go to the press and she chose not to do it out of respect for him. >> she had a story to tell, but out of respect for the person she worked for sheave didn't tell it? >> that's true. pete: the double standard of this moment is glaring. will so-called mainstream media ever ask the question of the candidate they're protecting? biden's campaign denies the accusations. the white house is considering adding measures to restrict immigration visas. the executive order president trump signed on wednesday is the first step in protecting american workers. >> actually directs the department of homeland security as well as the department of labor to look at these non-immigrant or temporary visa programs and come back to him
with recommendations. pete: the executive order suspend some immigration into the u.s. it is set to expire in 60 days but president trump said it could be extended depending on america's needs. the mayor of tampa apologizing to tom brady for kicking him out after public park closed amid the covid-19 outbreak. mayor jane castor calling it best not first impression. writing given my law enforcement background i couldn't help someone investigate sighting after goat, greatest of all time, running wild in one of our city parks. the letter welcoming buccaneer teammates brady and rob gronkowski to the florida city. those are the headlines f those are the rules you have to kick tom great did i out just like everybody else. nicole: you have people, you have people being arrested for children, not arrested, threatened being fine taking children to playgrounds.
i don't like tom brady getting apology. pete: everybody should, you're totally right. coming up outrage in one texas county as residents are ordered to wear a mask in public or fined 1000 bucks. we'll talk to the head of the police union. you ever wish you weren't a motaur? sure. sometimes i wish i had legs like you. yeah, like a regular person. no. still half bike/half man, just the opposite. oh, so the legs on the bottom and motorcycle on the top? yeah. yeah, i could see that. for those who were born to ride, there's progressive.
and i recently had a heart attack. it changed my life. but i'm a survivor. after my heart attack, my doctor prescribed brilinta. it's for people who have been hospitalized for a heart attack. brilinta is taken with a low-dose aspirin. no more than 100 milligrams as it affects how well brilinta works. brilinta helps keep platelets from sticking together and forming a clot. in a clinical study, brilinta worked better than plavix. brilinta reduced the chance of having another heart attack... ...or dying from one. don't stop taking brilinta without talking to your doctor, since stopping it too soon increases your risk
of clots in your stent, heart attack, stroke, and even death. brilinta may cause bruising or bleeding more easily, or serious, sometimes fatal bleeding. don't take brilinta if you have bleeding, like stomach ulcers, a history of bleeding in the brain, or severe liver problems. slow heart rhythm has been reported. tell your doctor about bleeding new or unexpected shortness of breath any planned surgery, and all medicines you take. if you recently had a heart attack, ask your doctor if brilinta is right for you. my heart is worth brilinta. if you can't afford your medication, astrazeneca may be able to help.
♪. jason: a texas county judge facing backlash after mandating all houston residents must wear masks in public starting tomorrow. otherwise violators could face a fine of up to $1000. the head of the houston police union is slamming the judge's orders as draconian. he joins me now, welcome to joe gamaldi. you're the president of the
fraternal order of police. we appreciate you joining us here. i want to read first this harris county judge's statement. this is what he gave to us, quote. the public health interventions we've enacted with the support of our residents is already making a difference with over 4500 lives saved but we cannot let our guard down. politicizing a public health crisis is the worst outcome imaginable for the long-term health and safety in our community. but i need to ask you, from the police point of view, 1000-dollar fine, is this, how are you going to implement this? >> well, you know, let me be clear about something first. houston police officer's union supports everyone wearing a mask. i wear a mask every day when i go outside when i'm around folks. all of our officers are wearing masks we draw a line at draconian order a county judge
imposes on everyone. think about this, 26 million americans filed for unemployment the last five weeks but yet our county judge, lina hidalgo she thinks it is good idea to impose a 1000-dollar fine on them. we have someone with businesses closed. they can't make the rent, can't make the mortgage. we'll kick the community while they're down, give them 1000-dollar fine because they're not wearing a mask? it is completely ridiculous. if see had any sense at all she would rescind the order immediately. jason: so if a person, say some gentleman decides to walk his dog, because the dog needs to relief itself, thereby themselves in a park, are you telling me that a houston police officer is ordered by a judge to detain that person and give them 1000-dollar fine? >> that is exactly what our idiotic county judge would like us to do. we work so hard every single day to build trust with our community. we're out there every single day, we're bridging the gap, just like everyone asked us to do. we'll be damned if we'll allow
this county judge to erode all that trust. what i rerid eighted to the community to our officers in matters such as these we have discretion, discretion, discretion. if one of other officers sees somebody not wearing a mask, might give a wave, might want to put a mask on, what every mayor we're saying we'll not enforce the 1000-dollar fine, we'll give you a mask. this makes a hell of a lot more sense. jason: yeah it does. houston is such a big city, one of the biggest in the nation. we appreciate the police officers, the people you represent on the front lines. there is a lot to deal with in the world but i think the discretion is what we ultimately want to see and i do think that judge overstepped, again thanks to you and all the officers on the front line. we do appreciate it. >> thank you. jason: still ahead, growing fears over a meat shortage in the united states as the nation's biggest pork suppliers

meatpacking giants, tyson and smithfield closing plants amidst coronavirus outbreaks among employees. pete: it sent the meat industry plummeting with pork production down 25% and struggling to keep shelves stocked. could this plunge the food supply into crisis? good question. national pork producers council, north carolina hog farmer, david herring. thanks for joining us. i gotten multiple texts, when you look at major producers, smithfield is chinese-owned by the way, should be noted. their plants have been closed. what are we looking at? will we see shortages? >> well it's, the industry is in dire straits. it is a really perilous situation right now, unprecedented times and one thing i really want to state is this is real. it is happening. because of these plant shutdowns. there is farmers that have pigs
backing up on the farms. it is just a terrible situation and, you know, right now there is food but if we can't run our plants and harvest these animals, there will be food shortages. nicole: that is one of the biggest concerns. if you look back at times of the great depression secular stagnation, when loss of viable foods, we don't want to get to that pork is the most consumed meat on planet, it brings in billions of dollars to the united states. what is it pork farmers are needed, looking for help to maintain some plant openings? >> we have been hit hard since the covid. 25% of the pork market is food service. with the restaurants closing we have lost 25% of the market. we have roughly 2.7 million hogs
that are ready to market each week for the next five weeks. our plant harvest capacity keeps going down each week because of plant closures. so what we really need right now, we need cdc, we need the government, we need everybody to help us keep our plants open so we can harvest animals. we can provide the food that the people need. other thing we need is, we need the government to help us. we know we're going to have to depopulate some of these farms because of these plant closures. we need every bit of the help we can get from state and federal agencies to help us depopulate these farms in a proper way with proper guidance. pete: david, let's hope the federal government is listening, these measures come into place. when would the shortage be seen? hope it doesn't happen if the supply chain goes the way it does, processing plants are not
open, when would consumers feel the effect? >> hard for me to speculate on that. we're already seeing some shortages in different areas because supply chain issues. i want to, i want everybody to understand, this is not a shortage of animals. this is a problem of getting the animals harvest of the and turned into a product or or into a product that can be consumed. even in north carolina we see shortages in grocery stores now because distribution centers are not designed to increase 25% because food service has gone away or, restaurant has gone, consumption has gone away. even in my local grocery stores today, the shelves are not full. pete: hits people where they're at. not as easy to ship straight from retailers and restaurants to, to these grocery stores,

we need some showers. also going to drop temperatures down behind this for a few days. that will be great news. here is the storm i'm talking about. ohio valley, towards mid-atlantic, northeast. a slow mover. watch out it goes into future radars. with us all day today. overnight. colder air gets in there we're almost into may. look at the white. that is all snow across interior sections. we'll see snowflakeses across coastal areas of may. this isn't out of here until tuesday. this storm total, maybe see 6:00-inch snowfall totals. places up to an inch of rain. another snowstorm across parts of northeast. up state pennsylvania and parts of new york, talking three to four inches of rain so the gloom continues. other good news not a lot of rain across the southeast where we're so waterlogged. the other story, jason alluded to this earlier, big eat heat

one beach town in massachusetts making sure seasonal residents stay homebound. the town of southbury refusing to turn on water meters for 300 beaches. wave of part-timers say at the same time will spread covid-19. joining me the councilman that voted against it and southbury resident. i want to go to you, because you voted against this measure. why did you do that? >> yeah, i, you know, we all want to be safe. first of all, let me thank you for having me on the show. we all want to be safe in this epidemic but, but you know we can't overdo things. i felt that it was just plain wrong to deny someone the use of their property. a lot of people like to come up in april and may, get their properties ready for memorial
day and following summer, and that's when things happen. really memorial day, partially in june, then into the summer. so it is, i just felt it was totally unfair. jason: let's go to what the salisbury town manager neil herring said on decision. one thing to disagree with the town's decision, which is anyone's legal right -- not acting illegally. this type of demagoguery stands in stark contrast to the generally accepted notion that we will all need to pull together and help each other during these times of crisis. jimmy, how in the world does this city manager think that not allowing these homes to have water is helping each other in this time of crisis? >> personally i think it is a violation of the constitutional rights. it doesn't affect me. i'm a year-round resident so, it doesn't affect me but i have a friend that owns a home just a
few houses a way from me. two adult children, who obviously out of school due to this epidemic. they have no place to go for mother's day. maybe they want to take a ride to the beach, to the beach home, take a walk on the beach. maybe they want to paint a wall. i think it is so unfair. just -- jason: chuck, i mean, chuck this is their personal property. you got, you know, stay at home, keep social distancing and yet no water. what is the next step, real quickly? >> well, the next step, right now the water will be turned on, or start taking appointments after, after mae 4th. if the governor extends the order, then that also will move forward. so the next, right now the, that's the order, three select man out of five and town manager
put this into effect. unless one of the selectman on the other side changes this, will be, this will be the rule of the day. jason: listen, jimmy, i hope you're able to reach your hand out. i'm sure that is a beautiful part of the world but not turn on water for your neighbors is so fundamentally, totally wrong. thank both of your gentlemen. you're not directly affected but your neighbors are. thanks for being with us today. >> agree 100%. jason: honor medical workers by making a fashion statement. we'll talk to incredible team at john's crazy socks about the effort to raise money for nurses. that is coming up next.

you have always taken your company, done for other people which is just incredittable. what made you choose to donate to the nurse association? why did you decide that is where you wanted these proceeds to go? >> with us, it is all about giving back, right? it is not enough to just sell stuff. we wanted to raise money to go directly to the workers. so the health care superheroes socks, five dollars from every pair, will go to the american nurses foundation's coronavirus relief fund and the other pair, the, this hero wears scrub socks, will go to local organization. good samaritan hospital here in long island, to their coronavirus relief fund. pete: love it. mark, john, we love you guys. thanks for coming back to the show. weapon love the stocks. go to john's crazy sox.com to donate and get the socks.

doctor? -- you need just common sense. you got to be able to watch your hands and stay socially distanc distanced and take on some personal responsibility; right? nicole: i mean, trust me. i love preaching on personal responsibility and individual accountability but, you know, for me common sense is getting outside. so with the state parks closed and other areas of being outside closed, that to me is not common sense. so i'm glad to see that we're moving towards a place where some of these places are opening so people can actually get out of their homes, get some vitamin d from the sun and get outside, fete some physical activity happening. pete: get out of your homes, maybe grab a good book, maybe make america healthy again, i don't know, get some sunshine. there you go, dr. nicole saphier saphier's great new book. great to have you both on this sunday edition. we're at the halfway mark. the best is still in front of us us. jason? jason: i was going to say, you know, second only to utah, of course, colorado is a pretty good place to get out, enjoy the
great outdoors. and so we're pleased to have senator corey gardner. i had the pleasure and honor of serving with senator gardner when he was a mere member of the house of representatives, but now he is senator corey gardner. colorado is looking to loosen up some of these restrictions. are they making the right move and is the federal government, donald trump, making the right move too? >> i believe so. and just to point out, jason, we get more days of sunshine than utah does so we're the most sunshine of any state in the country. i think coloradans are ready. i've worked closely with the governor of colorado. when the president rolled out his three phase approach, i spoke to the governor to see if that would mesh with what colorado was doing. he thought it was very much in line with what we're trying to do and we'll start seeing these sort of guidances loosen up tomorrow as the governor moves from his shelter in place order to a safer home order, away from
the shelter in place order. pete: senator, your stay-at-home order ends today, as of today, residents and citizens of colorado are not being asked to stay at home. how quickly do you think that means you get back to regular life, responsibly, of course -- we understand the limitations, but restaurants, retailers, the types of businesses that have been hit so hard? >> i think it's important to point out that the governor, of course, has put in places guidances that if you have an underlying risk factor or more at risk shelter in place orders still stand, and if you can avoid crowds, if you can avoid spaces where you're not able to social distance then you should not about it there or you should stay away from there but trying to get people to open retail, curbside retail pickup begins, loosening that effect by may 4th 4th. we should start seeing other businesses open, offices being open at 50% capacity coming in as long as they put other safeguards in place like a temperature check so i keep the people of colorado are ready and
certainly we're following the best advice from our health experts. but we're ready to get moving, get open. nicole: senator, your state alone has had a big economic hit with the closures of the ski resorts and even the canceling of the stampede rodeo festival. for your state particularly, you need a more sustainable form of social distancing because your state cannot keep having everything closed and canceled like this. >> that's exactly right. you know, throughout this entire epidemic i've focused on three things, number one flattening the curve and stopped the spread number two individuals who have sacrificed so much and they're uncertain what's going to happen next and number three, make sure we have businesses able to keep payroll and bring people back to work and snap back once this health emergency is over but we can't do this again. we can't afford to shut down, stop commerce again. that's why we're following those guidances, following the certificates, doing what we can to social distance, as you talked about earlier, taking on the responsibility of good hygiene practices, making sure
that we're implementing in our everyday lives but we've got to get this country moved again. colorado has been hard hit. we've got mountain counties some of the hardest economically hit in the country. jason: senator, you play a very important role in the senate foreign relations committee. you're one of the more influential members there. your colleague, lindsey graham of south carolina, is calling to hold china very, very accountable and to treat them the way al-qaeda is treated after 9/11. listen to what your colleague lindsey graham had to say on this topic. >> after 9/11 when al-qaeda attacked america and killed almost 3,000 americans we came together to push back, to go after them. we should have the same attitude about china. china's responsible for 26 million unemployed americans, 53 53,000 dead american, and this is a chance for congress to come together. we came together to spend $2.7
trillion because of the damage done to our economy due to china china. is i've got two goals, why, and that is to get china to change their behavior and if they don't sanction the hell out of them, and the second goal is make 'em pay . jason: your reaction, senator? >> there's no doubt china has to take responsibility for what happened. they disappeared the scientists, they disappeared the health care workers who were trying to blow the whistle on the coronavirus. they made it impossible for the world health organization to find out really what was going on and then the world health organization turned around and copied what china was saying even though they weren't telling the truth and so we have layer after layer of deceit here, of deception here, and certainly lack of transparency here. and had china been more forthcoming, had they loud participation into the world health assembly and world health organizations by taiwan and other international participants had they allowed full disclosure by people coming in to china to see what was going on, we could have avoided this.
we wouldn't have had the belief that there was no human to human transmission or no community transmission, we wouldn't have had the belief that this was only people that were old. these are things that led to decisions around the globe that cost time, cost lives, and certainly cost one heck of a lot of people their jobs and it's unacceptable and china will be held to account, the world health organization will be held to account and it begins with the transparency that we still don't have out of china now. pete: senator, it's even larger than that. they can disappear anybody they want at any time. they call it -- they're the communist party. it's fake capitalism. it's all state stolen secrets that they've been trying to use against us. i was on amazon prime last night trying to watch a movie and one of the first suggestions was a movie called "new money." this is in the united states. it was a propaganda film, pro- pro-china propaganda film in our own country but what a wonderful country is, how, massachusetts, and california are more communist than china is. they glaze over everything.
they're trying to infiltrate our universities. this is a civilizational battle against a country that seeks our destruction. >> it is. and that's why, you know, i have asked for a task force to be set up, the national security council to counter chinese propaganda and misinformation. i have led the passage of the asia reassurance initiative act which puts billions of dollars into countering china and the malign activities of the chinese communist party. we've got an evert that would make sure the state department is documenting the bullying that our countries face every day from china, as they try to convince our companies to get their way. nicole: senator, president trump is not one to toe the line so if there is evidence of misdoings by china then president trump will be holding them and the world health organization accountable, i'm sure of that. >> that's right. look. we have to. there's no doubt about it. jason: senator, i need to get your reaction. there are questions about kim jong-un, the leader of harris county, his health, is even alive at this point. what can you tell us?
>> i have no information other than what people are reading automate news or hearing on the nightly news. we do know that his mysterious train is at the compound, according to most recent satellite images. this is a compound that you wouldn't normally take the train to. we do know i believe it was his father that passed away on the train. we've heard rumors of this chinese team that came to north korea including a medical team. we also know that south korea has said that there is no such problem going on with kim jong-un. but certainly something is very suspicious. there were big events on the 15th of april, big events on the 25th of april that kim jong-un would normally be seen and participate in. he missed both of those. something is going on. and the question is, what happens next for the people of north korea who have suffered under tyranny, who suffered under dictatorship, who have been jailed and imprisoned by their own leader, maybe this is a chance for north korea to join the modern world. but we'll see what happens, whether this information is true or not. pete: that is the big question, senator. i'm hearing from people very
close to this, the likeliest scenario is that kim jong-un is either dead or brain dead or totally incapacitated. they're hearing rumors of this. people that are well sourced. again, very closed country so you can't know for certain. what does the next -- how can we possibly know how the future of north korea would unfold if he were to be out of the mix? >> well, it is believed that he has three children. they're young, very young; so you look at his other family member, his sister has been high profile within the government. the bottom line is it's hard to see how things would change at least for now unless the people of north korea decide that they're ready for something different. look. our approach to kim jong-un was never to bring kim jong-un to his knees. it was always to bring kim jong-un to his senses by joining the world of responsible actors, by complying with international law, complying with united nations resolutions, that's what we were trying to get north korea to do. and they flaunted the law every single chance. this is an opportunity, if this
should happen, for the people of north korea to realize they don't have to be in political gulags anymore. they don't have to be sent to re reeducation camps every time they, you know, take too many bites of whatever wood pulp soup the government has decided they're going to be giving them that day. these are opportunities for the people of north korea to realize you know what, why can't we have what our neighbors, our family members to the south have, which is a prosperous economy, freedom and opportunity? that's what they could be looking at if they just came into compliance with international law, if they stopped breaking the law, the people of north korea could have opportunity that they never imagined possible before. pete: absolutely. senator corey gardner, thank you very much for joining us this morning. the stay-at-home order has lifted where you are so i expect you as a healthy young man to be out as soon as possible. thank you job senator. appreciate it. good stuff. we begin your additional headlines with severe weather. fierce winds and heavy rain

you know, we've had 27 repeat offenders in the last 30 days -- or, sorry -- 13 days since this new emergency bail schedule was put in place, and it's been -- we've had a gentleman that was out about 37 minutes out of jail that went on to commit two carjackings. we have another person that did about two dozen auto thefts and by nine burgers and we had to let that person out as well. so it's been a trying time for us. jason: that's what's frustrating the officers arrest him. 37 minutes later he's back out -- 37 minutes after he's back out, they re-arrest him. just to give people a sense of it you've got about 1.5 million residents within that county near, yes, i do oakland, california, is. you're housing about 2600 inmates. but more than 800 of those under this new plan have been pre prereleased or released back out into the community. >> yes, they are released.
and the only people that we're keeping in custody are people who were serious violent crime, people who domestic violence. child abuse for some reason does not qualify to be kept in custody so that's a zero bail offense. our partners in san bernardino -- >> wait. i'm sorry. i want to go back to that for a second. i'm sorry. you're engaged in child abuse, that's allegation; right? you're not convicted yet, you're telling me that that officer goes into that home under child abuse, that person has zero bail and they're going to be able to go home that same day? >> that's correct. and other crimes like d.u.i. would be kept in, but in this situation we've seen a loophole here where child abusers may be able to get out on the zero bail bail. repeat car thieves too. you could steal a car every day
in california right now and get out of jail every late in the afternoon, start in the morning, get out by the end of the afternoon. >> so crazy. california's just going off the rails. i want to read this statement from california's judicial council. they gave it to fox & friends. it says, "there is nothing in the measure that says defendants should be cited and released before trial or that accused child abusers should not be detained. it is not a blanket release order. a judge can still deny or raise bail if they find good cause that a defendant is a threat to public safety." but, sir, you're telling me that's not the case. >> you know, we had to decipher all this law, and that's not what we're seeing. we're seeing situation where we're having to let people go. jason: well, i got to tell you, it is so terribly frustrating. we appreciate the men and women and what they're doing on the front lines. and god bless them because they're dealing with tough

can't hide behind being a foreign state and sovereign immunity. they can definitely be held accountable. and it's been done before. people have sued countries before. it's possible, and there's a clear path to justice because china has acted so egregiously here and they failed to warn us about a danger that, you know, has killed so many people and cost so many people their jobs. pete: the evidence is out there. lisette and felix, thank you very much for sharing your story story. good luck. and matthew as well with the suit. if you're interested in more information about it our viewers can go to demandchinapay.org if you're affected yourself as well well. thank you all so much. the nfl wraps up its first ever virtue draft with a record audience. up next our football panel braces the big moments and shares the players to watch this season, jack brewer, devon still and ron johnson all on deck. hi, i'm bob harper,

virtue nfl draft. it's been an amazing and different experience for all of us. and we hope you enjoyed it. jason: and it only seems fitting that it all ended with roger goodell in his t-shirt -- i don't know that i necessarily need to see that again next to a football mug and cupcake. our panel joins us now with how they think the draft went. former c.e.o. of the brewer group jack brewer, former nfl defensive lineman and author devon still and former baltimore raven and football analyst for fox 9 in minneapolis, ron johnson. gentlemen, i thank you all for being here. jack, i want to go to you first. what did you think of this virtual draft? i mean, the informally i thought did a pretty good job. >> they did a great job. it was entertaining. i think i watched the draft more this year than i have in years past, actually. it really was good to see roger goodell and the whole nfl team do such an amazing job during this pandemic. you actually got a chance to get
your mind off of this stuff, jason, and i think that was their goal, and they definitely accomplished it. i mean, record-breaking numbers. i mean, to see it go up by double digits in regards to the viewership, it's an exciting time, and hopefully the nfl can kick off without a hutch. jason: devon, i got to tell you now that i've finished netflix, i'm kind of ready for some real live actual sports out there. do you think america's ready for this? >> i agree with jack. i mean, just to see the numbers double, it really shows people just how much football means to america. i think that bringing sports back will be good just to get people's mind off of everything that's going on. but i want to make sure that we do it in a safe way for the players and everybody that's going to be involved with the playing of sports. jason: ron, what did you think of the virtual draft, and as you're out there talking to people, friends, neighbors, they're ready to actually watch
something live; right? >> i mean, of course, everybody everybody's clamoring for live sports. i mean, i think a lot of people tuned in last night to a mayweather fight that happened years ago so people are just looking for something to watch. honestly i think the fact that they missed out on it, was going to have over -- vegas missed out on it, was going to be a million people just to the draft, i think the numbers are definiteli definitelily skewed because everybody stuck at home. if people are able to stay home and enjoy the sunlight, i think they saw pretty similar numbers but i think vegas would have had a huge increase in live people because 600,000 were in tennessee last year. i think vegas would have probably doubled that number just because, one, it's vegas, and two of course the nfl draft is there. jason: you know, the raiders have that new stadium in vegas. i've driven by it. it looks awesome. the chargers also have a new stadium. i hope they're able to get it but we just had the draft. so i want to get your reaction. i thought george love going to the packers to me -- again our
old buddy i'm in utah -- so to see a utah state player go to the packers, the future of the quarterback situation in green bay, but let's kind of go around the horn and tell me who you think we should watch, who are the big players, and who did the best in the draft. let's start with you, jack. >> you know what? my giants did good, but i got to say those indianapolis colts did a phenomenal job this year in the staff. they filled so many holes, getting j. k. dobbins in the second round, i'm a big fan of that kid, i think he's going to have a great career so i'm looking for big things out of that team, they're a new look, you know, after losing luck like that. i think this will be a great year for indianapolis. jason: now, devon, i got to ask you, there's going to be a new tiger king in bengal country there in cincinnati. how did they do and who do you think's going to do the best? >> i think they did a great job as well. i know there was word on the street that they may have gave up that first pick overall to the dolphins so it's going to be interests to see what they turn
down in order to keep that pick. but i want to see how joe burrow really fits in with that bengals team because i got to say i played for the bengals so i know how good they are, i know they have all the pieces to go and win a championship, but now they have that leader at the helm that can really lead them to that championship so it's going to be interesting to see how he's able to handle the nfl. jason: ron, who are the players to watch and who do you think did the best? >> well, i mean, honestly, i think everybody, it was kind of a skewed number. the weird ones honestly i think the packers are weird to me. aaron rodgers, yes, i get it you drafted aaron rodgers he is the same age now that brett favre was, you have kind of a same blueprint, let's get a quarterback in, let the quarterback play out four or five years and he can sit, get ready, come in and be a star. they kind of made aaron a little bit upset. i did a video instagram actually depicting all the nfc north
quarterbacks and how they did in the draft. check that out. i'm going to go with devon. i like the bengals for the fact they added another weapon opposite amphetamine j. green and t. higgins, kid out of clemson, and of course the tampa bay buccaneers, you add tyler johnson, who some garnered as the number 2 receiver coming in, you had him with garwin and evans, tom brady always finds ways to make receivers great so when you look at those receivers that he has no, tyler johnson can easily catch 40 or 45 balls and then you at gronk in there as well that's a high powder offense and their defense did pretty well last year so they were -- the only issues they had were interceptions, 33 touchdowns, 30 interceptions by jamis winston. tom brady's not going to throw 30 interceptions. they have a defense that's not on the field as much, they're going to do good in tampa. i think tampa did a good job. the minnesota vikings they got read of stephon biggs and they filled a hole with justin jefferson and an offensive line at offensive tackle so they
filled all their immediate needs needs. they were a team that was an inch away from the super bowl. jason: i got to tell you, you guys are real football players. i was a place kicker in college, okay? they touch me, they throw a flag but i got to tell you when the new england patriots make a move and pick up a kicker there are some of us who were cheering for them to do that. it is called football for a reason. so i got to leave it at that. i'm not even going to let you comment on that one. so gentlemen, thank you so much. i do hope we start seeing some people hitting some other people for fun on the field of the nfl pretty soon. thanks for joining us. rick, i don't know who you thought the best draft, but we really go to you for weather. so tell me what you thought. >> that's true. yeah, you were talking earlier about how summer is here across the country, just across parts of west. take a look at the map. areas across the southwest dealing with incredible heat,
temps around 20 degrees, almost 20 degrees higher than average for this time of year and you don't like to see that for places that really have incredible summer heat so today 106 for high temperature in blithe. take a look at what happens in the phoenix area by wednesday you're at 106, if the heat sticks with us, just widened this map out, look at a number of different cities here, all the way into northern california tuesday redding you're at 92, december 74; so feels very much like summer across the west. complete contrast out across areas of the east where we continue to see storm after storm. florida, some good news. you've been so hot all winter long, a little bit of a break as storms move through but a storm across the mid-atlantic in terms of the ohio valley in the northeast, it's a slow mover, not done with this one until by tuesday morning. so expect some gloom, the gloom the gloom returns again by thursday this week. back to .ou jason: rick, thank you so much. truly spring, you got hot, you
got cold, snow, burning heat down in the southwest. so thank you so much. >> exactly. jason: coming up, student veterans attending trade schools at risk of losing their monthly aid. the president of one school fighting to keep vets and helping them keep their funding. he joins us next. an apron is protection. an apron is not quitting until you've helped make something better. what does an apron have to do with insurance? for us, especially right now, everything. ♪

♪ pete: welcome back. while many students have transition to do online classes during covid-19, not everyone has that option. some trade schools like the pennsylvania gunsmith academy require hands-on instruction and they had to cancel classes. the closure is hurting their student veterans who rely on monthly housing allowances as they get through school. here with more on the fight for funding is president and director at the pennsylvania gunsmith school bob thacker. bob, thank you for joining us this morning. great to see you.
full disclosure. i've been to that school. it's fantastic. you got a lot of vets there learning to be gunsmiths. tell us how this moment is affecting you guys. >> thanks for having me on, pete pete. i appreciate you having us and championing our veterans. we're a nontraditional school, meaning you can see behind me here we have a lot of machines, and people learn by hands-on training. it's been said that 60 to 80% of people are visual learners so that's so critical. but as a result of that, we can't do the online like your traditionals do, and the veterans are suffering. and the reason that they're suffering is exactly what i said -- at traditional universities and colleges they can do online and as a result they can receive their full monthly housing allowance, m.h.a. as they call it so as a result here we can't get the m.h.a. and another problem is is that they're only going to get four
weeks of m.h.a. so it's a shame. and in addition to that, we're very thankful for congress approving house bill 6322 which gives the secretary an additional four weeks of training allowance. so we're appreciative, but there's a real possibility that some of these folks are going to lose some weeks of allowance. pete: they rely on that. now, we've heard -- it's been in the headlines that harvard university of got a bunch of money. now, they've given it back. people have called you guys the harvard of gunsmith schools. how come harvard gets that money but you guys are left sort of scratching? >> well, that's obviously a little different program. that's the ppp program, the payroll protection program. we didn't get that, either, and that's just because of a lot of snafus at the lending institution which hopefully that will be turned around. again, we never know that.
two separate programs, obviously obviously. but in any case, the bigger universities and colleges are always treated differently than we are at trade schools. we need at this time in our economy, we need the welders, we need the electricians, we need the people that do the cosmetology, the haircuts and the nails and the massage therapies and you name it. we really need that because of the time that we're in. and we need to make sure we take care of these particular people and in particular the soft spot in my heart obviously as you well know are our veterans. pete: absolutely. i've met them and i know you take great care of them. they love the craft they learn there at the pennsylvania gunsmith school and thanks for calling out all the trade schools, too, because they too often get left behind with the critical schools they teach students. bob thacker, we hope it gets resolved, we hope some folks will see this and take action.

as a health care worker myself, this policy is really all-inclusive, what you guys are doing here. you're including everyone who's contributing to the front line right now. so can you tell us a little bit more about it? >> yes, sure. happy to. yeah. it's available for anyone who's on the front lines right now. so health care workers, nurses, doctors, police officers, firefighters, emt, folks like that, we really wanted to do something to give back to the heroes who are helping all of us right now so this idea really generated from our franchisees so 95% of our restaurants in the u.s. are owned and operated by an amazing group of franchisees and they started doing this alone in communities across the country. 75% of americans live within five minutes of a mcdonald's so they were really trying to help out the communities. and so we said why don't we do this as a national program and really get the word out and tell people about it so we can really have a huge impact and the response so far has been phenomenal.
pete: absolutely. david, you know, tens of millions, hundreds of millions of americans, people around the world world love mcdonald's. full disclosure, i had my sausage egg and cheese mcmuffin already this morning at the mcdonald's. >> attaboy. pete: one of the few places that's open here in midtown manhattan. what do folks have to do? show their identification for what they do, it's that easy? >> oh, yeah, we wanted to make it super easy. so any front line workers can come in, show their badge or their id, and then they'll get a free meal and we've got three great options for breakfast. we've got three great options for lunch and dinner. and they all include a drink and a side like hash browns or our world class fries. so thanks for your business this morning. appreciate it. pete: you got it. you get it every morning. jason: well, david, thank you so much for doing this. anybody who has met me knows that i've never said "no" to a big mac so i appreciate what you're doing and thanking those who deserve it the best. but real quickly, how is this going to change the landscape for not only mcdonald's, but
just fast food in general? >> yeah. i mean, look. when this awful pandemic started you know, we made a decision that we wanted to remain open because we knew that people needed options. and, you know, we wanted to be able to provide hot, delicious meals for folks. and so we've been taking lots of steps to make sure that we keep our employees and our customers safe. so we've changed 50 different restaurant operations and procedures and things like that, things like wellness checks and temperature checks for our employees, putting up protective barriers at our front counters and in our drive-through his, masks, gloves, things like that. and i don't think we -- anyone quite knows what the relate is going to look like, but it's definitely going to change but we'll be ready to -- pete: the golden arches an icon of america and around the world, thank you for stepping up. >> thank you. pete: we appreciate it. this is an america together segment. we've got an america together
special tonight, ten o'clock airing on both fox news and fox business. don't miss it. inspiring stories. still ahead, one beach town refusing to turn on the water at seasonal homes to slow the virus virus. but did they go too far? tammy bruce weighed in. also trey gowdy and maria bartiromo. prebiotic fiber. good morning mrs. johnson. benefiber. trust your gut. ...
pete: good sunday morning welcome to fox & friends weekend we start with a fox news alert. president trump urging americans to use common sense as more states begin to ease restriction s. >> the president tweeting, remember the cure can't be worse than the problem itself. be careful, be safe. use common sense. jillian: and the white house is making plans to reopen national parks, and the nba is reportedly set to reopen practice facilit ies in states with looser restrictions. pete: that's right. jillian: that's interesting. we are talking about opening up outdoors activities, but then also the nba at the same time is saying the more close contact
sports is also trying to get a foot in as well so is there going to be a fine balance there to make sure they limit spread, because you know, we did have some positive covid patients before. pete: yeah, everybody where they're at within the confines of what they're allowed to do is attempting to move forward and the nba has a particular challenge when you're all over the country so people will be watching that closely to see how comfortable they are to open back up but jason i know, it be great to see sports right now >> jason: it be great to see sports and great to get outdoors and do-it-yourself so i'm glad the president and the department of interior are going to open up our national parks. they're still closed far too many. i think states are going to start to open it up. you got beaches where it's hot. just have to still use as the president said, common sense. don't get within six feet of people. stay 300 feet away from a bear, and you're good to go. and i just think that you got to be smart and wash your hands and let's get outside and enjoy the
great outdoors and kill the virus. >> well i agree with that jason but it's only common sense for more common. we keep seeing videos of the packed beaches. i want everybody to get outside that's the right thing good for our mental and physical health but you have to be smart about it too and make sure you are adhering to those social distance measures because the truth is theres a fine line between responsible social distancing and if we want to avoid a state of tyrany, we need to make sure people are being smart as we do loosen up restrictions. pete: yeah, i see those beaches and to be honest i've looked at a lot of photos of beaches and people are mostly acting responsibly. you've got a lot of people it's going to be a little crowded but they are keeping their space mostly healthy people young families those of which are more able to have freedom of movement contrast that with some of the harder hit places you go to grocery stores, walmart and it's packed and there are lines and people are trying to social distance but they can't so this is a reflection across the
country there are going to be different reactions and we've got a bunch of states easing restrictions we showed map briefly. some of the things that will be opening up in some of these states over the course of this week, outpatient procedure, so many hospitals have been hit hard by not being able to do elective surgeries, some retailers, some child care services, places of worship, churches, outdoor activities as jason mentioned and even restaurants in some places in oklahoma and elsewhere, opening up gradually. i think someone tweeted at me south carolina is also number one, another of the states easing some of the restrictions this week and colorado today the stay-at-home order ends and folks can head out and be responsible about it. >> jason: i think, again, personal responsibility, let's be smart. we want to see those numbers go away but colorado is one of the key states that's going to open up, the democratic governor , but also you have a republican senator in corey gardner who joined us earlier
and talked about colorado opening up. >> i think colorado is ready. i've worked closely with the governor of colorado and when the president rolled out his three-phased approach i spoke to the governor to see how that would mesh with what colorado was doing and he thought it was very much in line with what we were trying to do and we'll start seeing those sort of guidances loosen up tomorrow, if you're following the best advice from our health experts but we're ready to get moving and get open. we can't afford to shutdown stuff, commerce again that's why we're following those guideline, following the experts doing what we can do social distance but we've got to get this country moving again. pete: you know, this is an earnest question. how much i hear from a lot of people that feel like because the epidemic is in new york and new jersey, and because the media is in new york and new jersey, ultimately there's so much focus here and an assumption that the same measures need to be taken across the country when there are some places that just haven't seen the same affect and can apply
different measures, give latitude to their citizens to be responsible and hopefully that's part of what we're seeing here as well. >> yeah, absolutely and we live in a very diverse nation demographically, geographically and one thing that we have to keep in mind there are nominal cases of the virus being transmitted outdoors, so in these states that have a lot of outdoor activities, colorado and everywhere elsewhere the beaches , that's not where you're catching the virus. you're catching it from being indoors so it's a great idea to get outdoors as long as you can do it smartly as long as the hospital systems have enough a vail all beds. we were hearing right now one beach town in massachusetts is actually refusing to turn on the water for their visitors, in an attempt to have people not come in but again, as we're talking about tyranny and the stay-at-home orders are those really right? can they do that and i'm not so sure. >> well and you have these situations where you have
government officials making all the wrong decisions. earlier we talked to some police officers, law enforcement where judges are ruling that you have to release and put out people who have committed crimes with no bail, but this situation as dr. sapphire talked about it is so wrong and in massachusetts , a small beach town, you have people who have second homes and about 300 people affected were the town decided to vote to not turn on the water, to try to say hey you can't use your own personal property. listen to what they said about it, jimmy castle who was on earlier with us today. >> personally i think it's a violation of the constitutional rights. i have a friend that owns a home just a few houses away from me. two adult chirp children who are obviously out of school and this epidemic and they have no place to go for mother's day.
>> we all want to be safe in this epidemic but, you know, we can't over do things and i felt that it was just wrong to deny someone the use of their property and it just felt that it was totally unfair. pete: shut off the water to someone's house? i mean are they not paying property taxes? the rationale for this is lunacy and you mentioned tyranny doctor there's no tolerance for an ounce of tyranny in this country that's why we're a free country and why we revolted the way we did so many years ago so when you start to see the increments of power going to the heads of leaders taking these non sense draconian measures that don't afford for common sense you can't go out to by yourself to a park even if you're tom brady down in tampa bay and you can't park in your parking lot and worship at your church on sunday, that when rules become unreasonable, that's when people go out and protest and there were a bunch of protests yesterday across the country still, because there
are leaders and governors, mayor s and others digging their heels in saying i have the power , if this is my jurisdiction you will listen to me. well, no, no, they actually work for you, the people, the citizens and when they are voicing out that you're being overburdened, that's why people react. and you didn't react. >> i mean, i can't agree with you more. [laughter] i thought jason was going to say something i was just waiting for his response but the truth is you're absolutely right, pete people are paying taxes, and i understand that they're wanting to limit interstate travel right now, because certainly small beach towns are towns with lower rates of infection aren't wanting to have people come in with the potential of bringing in the virus but the truth is you can not deny people's rights to access their home, their property, which they pay taxes for , because you will start se. we already are seeing protests across the country and we need
to get to a reasonable place within our country where we are keeping everyone safe but we're also respecting their freedom. >> jason: well i love the optimism towards getting towards reasonable but i got to tell you politics is not usually reasonable, so we're going to transition a little bit to some unreasonable politics, because joe biden's accuser tara reed slamming the mainstream media. she had an exclusive interview with fox news. the former biden staffer asking why the presidential candidate has not been questioned about her public claims and garrett tenney joins us live in arlington, virginia with the interview. garrett? reporter: well good morning, you all. tara reed says she's extremely frustrated and disappointed because she went public with her accusations of sexual assault against joe biden a month ago and since then, joe biden has done nearly a dozen tv interview s but not once has he been asked about it. she tells fox news i think it's
shocking this much time has passed and he is an actual nominee for president and they're not asking the questions and so that tells me there may be a political agenda behind that, and that's gross. i am a survivor, i would like the question asked. reade claims joe biden sexually assaulted her in 1993 while she worked for his senate office and other former staffers don't recall hearing anything about it but reade called her mom afterwards to tell her what happened. a new clip appears to support that with an unnamed california resident calling into cnn larry king live in 1993 to talk about her daughter's experience on capitol hill. reade confirms to us that that caller was her late mother. >> i'm wondering what a staffer would do besides go to the press in washington. my daughter has just left thereafter working for a prominent senator and could not get through with her problems at all and the only thing she could have done was go to the press
and she chose not to do it out of respect for him. >> she had a story to tell but out of respect for the person she worked for she didn't tell it? >> that's true. reporter: reade believes there's a clear double standard that play in the media over her account telling fox news, i guess my question was if this were donald trump would they treat it the same way? if this were brett kavanaugh did they treat it the same way? in other words it's politics and political agenda playing a role and asking the question and reporting. democratic lawmakers have largely been silent on these allegations against the nominee. allegations that biden campaign fiercely denies, but a former top advisor to hillary clinton is now calling on biden to dropout of the race, tweeting in part, difficult thread biden should withdraw. i respect the will of the voters but new information has emerged supporting tara reade's account of, sexually assaulted by joe biden. we have no moral standards and he continues, this is the
ethical position and the smarter strategy to beat trump. we lose all moral authority if we embrace the lesser of two accused rapists. now earlier this month, reade filed a criminal complaint with police in d.c., but again, the biden campaign strongly denies these allegations, and says this incident simply never happened. back to you all. >> jason: garrett thank you so much and you know what's infuriating about this is joe biden has been in front of anderson cooper, other people and they don't even ask this but i've got to tell you there are some people concerned about this earlier i had the people to talk to a former 2016 bernie sanders campaign staffer, listen to what she had to say about it. >> i think this is another case of democrats not practicing what they preach. you know, the old saying is that women are to be believed and i think the fine print to that is unless they are the preferred candidate of the president of the united states. >> it's not just the media.
it's the pastors, politicians and even senator bernie sanders. when i say i believe in social justice that also includes him, so he deserves to be blasted as well because it was senator bernie sanders that said that he signed the 94 crime bill because of the violence against women's act, well tara is a woman and alleging violence. >> i think the lack of questions for joe biden in regards to some of these claims is really showing us that objective reporting is going farther and farther away from being objective and more subjective as part of politics and really coming into play. we've seen this play out over the last four years and the media was not as kind to justice kavanaugh and then president trump and unless they treat biden the same, you really just see it as partisan poll politics. pete: they were not kind about justice kavanaugh, in this case covering up and won't ask the question, they're buddies, fellow democrats, joe biden. still ahead after a court battle a mississippi church wins the
pete: welcome back well this covid-19 moment has shown a spotlight on first freedoms and how much leaders and governors can respring them remember the governor of new jersey famously said the bill of rights was above his pay grade while other states have seen that as well. mississippi church as it pertains to faith. mississippi church just won a lawsuit against the government there so they can hold drive-in worship, just in order to drive- in, kansas governor just settled with a couple of baptist churches in kansas because he put restrictions in the amount of people that could be at services. they've reached an agreement and in minneapolis, for the first time, mosques there will be allowed to broadcast the call to prayer five times the islamic
call to prayer five times a day into public neighborhoods into minneapolis something that's never happened before it'll happen throughout the entire month, guys, so a lot of people look at this including myself, and feel like there's a big double standard. churches being cracked down upon , but in this case, in minneapolis, encouragement to broadcast from a mosque out to lots of people in the city of minneapolis. >> you no one of our greatest strengths as a nation is that we do have state legislation and everything varies depending upon which state you're in as well as which municipality you're in but unfortunately when it comes to our faith services i think we have to have a collaborative effort to make sure the people who want to worship are able to get there and they're able to do it in the way that they want to do it. yes, we need to make sure they are doing it safely as we're still trying to mitigate the spread of this viral illness but the fact that we have lawsuits going on because people are wanting to pray, that's
really concerning. >> jason: the virus is not an excuse to just dismiss the bill of rights or the united states constitution. we do have the first amendment right to assemble. we do have the freedom of religion. we do have the ability to worship in this country and there is a responsible way to do that where you have some social distancing but when you see these cars go into this parking lot and they do a radio transmission of what the preacher is talking about for that to be broken up and then to have as you mentioned, pete, in new jersey, oh, well i didn't even consider the bill of rights when i decided to put these draconian actions into place, that's what's so infuriating when people need faith or at least want to have faith in their lives. pete: absolutely, and then the hipocracy of so-called watchdog groups. the aclu and freedom from religion report calling out the muslim call to prayer into public spaces nor are they defending christians because
those groups while they say're for civic freedoms and religious freedom ultimately, no they are for a leftist approach to how we view politics and religion in this country so we bring those stories because right now a lot of people are talking about what the public square is doing as it pertains to faith. still ahead in a fox news exclusive, a former joe biden staffer, accusing him of sexual assault. blasting the media for refusing to cover it. tammy bruce calls the double standard grotesque and joins us, next.
american workers. >> it actually directs the department of homeland security as well as the department of labor to look at these non- immigrant or temporary visa programs and come back to him with recommendations. pete: the executive order suspends some immigration into the u.s.. it's set to expire in 60 days but president trump has said it could be extended depending on america's needs. >> publix is stepping into help struggling farmers and those trying to find food. the grocery store chain is purchasing milk and produce to be donated to food banks while many farmers say the gesture is great others fare it might be a little too late. one farmer joined us earlier to weigh in on that. >> when the restaurants closing , we've lost 25% of the market. we need the cdc, we need the government, we need everybody to help us keep our plants open. pete: the initiative is expected to run. jason over to you. >> jason: thanks, pete.
blasting media bias, in a fox news exclusive interview the former joe biden staffer accusing him of sexual assault is calling out the media for ignoring her allegations. tara reade saying "i think it's shocking that this much time has passed and they're not asking the questions. " i guess my question is if this were donald trump would they treat it the same way? if this were brett kavanaugh did they treat it the same way? our next guest agrees the left is ignoring her, despite embracing justice kavanaugh's accuser. joining us now on the double standard is fox news contributor , one of our favorite , tammy bruce, whose has an op-ed and it's up on foxnews .com, but i mean, the hipocracy here. the double standard is just stunning, tammy. >> well it is and i do use the word grotesque because look this is not just about a political party not delivering on a promise or doing something
that you didn't know they would do. this affects every woman's life. this sets a public even though it's not necessarily policy and they do correct policy things, their behavior and the nature of what they choose to focus on really affects how seriously women are taken and the issue of domestic violence, of sexual assault for those of us who have experienced stalking or assault or wide variety of things our argument has been, jason, you might remember during the kavanaugh hearings. my argument then was not to believe all women out of hand and due process but it was to take women seriously, so the me too movement becomes a joke when it's applied in a partisan manner. there's just, as a result, if that's a joke, then how seriously are you going to take women who do have complaints and all we've ever asked for is equal access to the justice system to be taken seriously and to be able to make, have an
opportunity to make our point i think the tara reade case is a perfect example of that when it comes to at least she could prove that she knew who she's accusing. she worked for joe biden. blazey ford as an example when it came to kavanaugh was never able to prove she had met the man she was accusing so double standard is i think an understatement. >> jason: well the biden campaign is vigorously denied these allegations but back in 2018, joe biden's former vice president, he had this to say about the kavanaugh allegations. "for a woman to come forward in the glaring lights of focus, nationally you've got to start off with the presumption that at least the essence of what she's talking about is real. whether or not she forgets facts, whether or not its been made worse or better over time that's joe biden in 2018 in his own words, tammy.
>> well you see that works when you're looking at a partisan application of the series so this is with women and you have to think about what is there to gain and that was part of his point. you're coming out in a national forum, we know what happens to people when that occurs but when you think about well is there something to gain, is there political gain, are these political partisans, is the person they're accusing an enemy or an opposition candidate? with kavanaugh, you had that. with biden, this is a woman who worked for him when he was in the senate whose mother, her now late mother was a femininist activist, a you've got, we've eliminated there certain elements of what there be to gain but that was his, i think his general point is correct. you have to look at intent and what motivation there might be, and that's fair game when this happens, but what we've seen in ms. reade's complaint is accurate too is the media approach has been grotesque as
well. >> jason: well, and he hasn't been asked about it even though he's been in front of cameras and there is a time stamp on this video revealed. tammy bruce has more at foxnews .com. you can go look at her op-ed, tammy thank you as always for joining us this beautiful sunday morning. >> thank you, jason. >> jason: still ahead president trump slamming democrats for another witch hunt as he criticized his coronavirus response. trey gowdy reacts to the growing feud, coming up, next. motor? nope. not motor? it's pronounced "motaur."
>> ♪ i left my heart in san francisco ♪ pete: it is your shot of the morning legendary singer tony bennett leads a musical salute to san francisco's medical workers the 93-year-old leading the city-wide sing-along to the classic song "i left my heart in san francisco" the singer tweeting earlier urging people to take part post ing i love you san francisco let's sing our song. doctor, so many ways different cities have found their way to recognize those doing the hard work for us right now. >> pete i relish in these moments because as we see all of this rhetoric coming out of washington and various forms of media these are good reminders we truly are just one nation and we do come together and this is
what counts. it really shows how much we respect one another and how we are a beautiful country and sometimes we just cannot listen to some of that that is coming out of washington. >> jason: i got to tell you when ordinary americans do extraordinary things we cannot do enough to thank them and step up and salute them and to see tony bennett doing that and mcdonald's giving away free meals and all of the things we can do in our own neighborhoods i hope we keep doing it because it really does bring out the best of america, but i want to bring in now, a friend, a colleague, somebody i served within the united states congress, the former congressman from south carolina, and i believe a fox news contributor, trey gowdy. trey, i really do appreciate yourself, tearing yourself out of bed. we gave you the latest possible time that we could, i was surprised that you actually got here this early but thank you so much for being here. >> thank you, jason. the draft kept me up late last night but i managed to get here
by 9:30. >> jason: so i want to get to politics and stuff going on in the world today because donald trump is blasting the democrats coronavirus as he calls it " witch hunt." here is an anthropology excerpt from the tumultuous campaign e-mail. he says first the democrats russia collusion dilution failed because we fought back and then their impeachment hoax failed because we fought back even harder and now they are trying to weaponize a new coronavirus committee against me, this is the third witch hunt in the three years. if the past has caught us anything it's that they're pathetic attempt to turn the american people against me are not going to work. i used to chair the oversight committee, you were the chairman of the oversight committee and now they want another committee in congress to go after the president and look at coronavirus? what's your take on that? >> well jason, let me phrase it a little bit differently.
the president has been under investigation since before he was the president. its been four years now. the russia investigation began in the spring of 2016, so for four years donald trump has been under investigation. i'm going to list for you the names of the people leading those investigations and i want you to stop me, jason, when i get to somebody you think is really fair, and peter strzok, lisa page, andy mccabe, james comey, john brennan, adam schiff , jerry nadler. how would you like to be investigated by that crew? so unfairness either the reality or the perception of unfairness has a devastating impact on the person who thinks they're being treated unfairly and so trump is watching this new committee be formed to investigate his response. have you seen schiff have a hear ing on michael horowitz's fisa review? have you seen schiff have a hear ing on china's response to covid-19? no it's all trump so if he
appears paranoid sometimes you can be paranoid and people really are out to get you. pete: and trey, just like in january and february, they were obsessed with impeachment when they could have otherwise been focusing or paying attention to things now affecting us now. the president tweeted yesterday, he said the do-nothing democrats are spending much on their money on fake ads. i never said that the coronavirus is a hoax but the democrats and the way they lied about it are a hoax and also it did start with one person from china and then grew and will be a miracle end. what's your take on how the president has handled this under siege, staring down the chinese, press briefings informing the american public what's your sense of his handl ing so far? >> well this is an unprecedented event in our country, and it's hard to be a leader which is why so few people raise their hands and say i actually want to be the president of the united states. my advice to the president is to
let the health care professionals handle, explaining our health care response. he should be the comforter in chief, the encourage erin chief, mix in hope with a reality of the statistics, but let the healthcare professionals handle giving us advice on how we should treat this virus. it is very frustrating to feel like you're constantly the object of unfair critique but its been that way for four years and i don't think he needs to punch down the individual reporters during these white house briefings. let the doctors handle those questions, be the president of the united states. that's an incredible honor very few people will ever have so don't punch down the individual reporters as tempting as it may be. and you know you mentioned a great point, trey in the fact that the president does like to speak off the cuff during those white house briefings but that's part of the reason why he
was elected in 2016 because america loved he speaks to them but unfortunately he does get a lot of criticism because he likes to speak outloud as dr. birx has said but i don't understand the dichotomy of this subcommittee saying they are going to investigate the trump adminitration and how they handled this when they are criticizing him that he needs to let medical professionals actually handle and field these questions and what the to do. the bottom line is this is just more divisive than anything that's going on right now because we're still in the midst of covid-19. we're not past it. why don't they actually get to work and put something forward to actually help like the small businesses and instead of having delayed and getting loans out. having the subcommittee in my opinion is just another waste of resources and people politicos time and going to take attention away from what is really needed right now. >> well, dr. sapphire the nicest complement i could pay you is you would not be able to understand the way washington reacts. you're a healthcare professional who just sees a patient and doesn't care if its a republican
or democrat just treats the patient. that's not the way washington works. they wanted this president under investigation since the day of his inauguration and they want him under investigation until the next election, and they're going to do it and do it with the aiding and the a betting of the d.c. media. where is the scrutiny for not having horowitz talk about fisa abuse? where is scrutiny for adam schiff for not having hearings on china and what they did with covid-19? it is all trump all the time so if he appears to be a little bit miffed at four years worth of investigation i think that's the reason. jason: now congressman i want your take on vice president biden who has denied the allegations of any sexual in pro piety but i've dot to tell you there are a lot of people looking at this case saying how come the media is not asking joe biden about these questions the way they inquired with justice kavanaugh? >> well jason, lady justice
wears a blindfold for a reason that's probably the last system that's universally respected in our culture be the justice system because you don't see r or d and you don't see northerner or southerner. you just see the facts. i was really critical of politicians during kavanaugh. how could you possibly say, jason say i'm going to decide who i believe before the person opens their mouth? do you remember democrat senator s saying all women must be believed? well that sure as hell wasn't their position when i was prosecuting rape cases and they were on the other side of the courtroom. they didn't think all women should be believed, so i want everybody to be treated the same joe biden is entitled to due process, this victim is entitled to tell her story and then we'll use cross-examination and the confrontation of witnesses that's the way we get the truth. we don't do it by saying entire category of witnesses are to be believed or disbelieved. that's not the way of the justice system works or the
political system should work. pete: trey gowdy, smart dude. we may disagree a little bit. i'd like to see the president smack back at these phony reporters but i get your point and we appreciate you joining us this morning, thank you so much. >> yes, sir, thank you all. pete: turning now to your headlines. a man in jail for rape charges is accused of trying to sexually assault another woman just days after getting an early release over the pandemic. the new york post reporting robert pondexter was serving time in new york's riker's island and he's one out of 50 inmates out of a couple thousand reincarcerated after getting released and a houston judge is ordering police to find any citizen who does not wear a mask in public, now the head of the city police union joined us earlier, blasting the measure. >> here we have someone who might have their business just been closed, they can't make their rent, they can't make their mortgage and we're going to kick the community while they are down and give them $1,000
fine because they're not wearing a mask? it's completely ridiculous and if she had any sense she would rescind the order immediately. pete: the order requires anyone older than 10 years old to wear a face mask for 30 days exceptions include exercising, eating, or drinking. and those are your headlines. >> jason: still, returning some $170 million supposed to help small businesses while others plan to keep it. maria bartiromo joins us on the stimulus confusion, coming up, next.
the government reportedly return $170 million in stimulus funds and enough to cover roughly 825 loans. >> jason: here to discuss "sunday morning futures" host, maria bartiromo. maria thank you so much for joining us. this exposure, this sunlight, is that why they're actually returning these dollars or is there something the government is doing because i think it's actually the idea that this is going to be publicly available information. maria: yeah, look, i think that it's great to see all you guys this morning by the way. thank you for having me. >> good morning. maria: i think one of the issues were that the guidelines were not clear enough initially, so if you were a business that had to shutter your doors, had to tell employees that you were going to be furloughed, you look to take money from the government. here we are as the paycheck program, the whole idea is to make sure the money gets to employees so that they're not out of compensation so mid-sized , big and small businesses went and took it.
it was not enough clarity with regard to what private equity was to be offered, not enough clarity in terms of big versus small, publicly traded companies versus private companies, and that's where some of the issues came. you're looking at companies like auto nation. that's a public company. it can tap the public market for more money. same with shake shack. that's why these companies are giving back the money. the problem here is that as i understand it my sources have told me that much of this second tranche the $320 billion that the government just signed off on at the end of last week it's already committed to so a lot of this money is already committed to so that's why the speculation is raging that we're going to see another stimulus package because a lot of this money is already being used and committed for businesses. look i think the government tried to do a very good job and they did working day and night and flooding this economy with cash, flooding this economy with money with the hopes people will not feel as strained as you
would expect given a shutdown and you also have to give the small business administration a little credit. they've been asked to give out $350 billion in three weeks whereas they have given under $1 billion for 10 years, you know, so you've got a situation where it was all new to all involved. i think the money going into the economy is a positive and it's obviously very smart of these companies to give it back if they can get loans elsewhere and that's what you're seeing. >> very true so as the economy increasingly becomes a public health concern as well tell us what we can expect to see on "sunday morning futures." maria: nicole we've got a big show. first off we're going to talk with senator tom cotton obviously the first one to raise the issue of the coronavirus being let out of that wuhan lab. i've been questioning him ever since and now this morning he's breaking news on china's motives i spoke with him yesterday wait until you hear what he has to
say about what the china communist government was wanting to do. plus we've got an exclusive with mayor bill deblasio, obviously new york city the epicenter of this crisis, devon nunes, dr. birx, and kevin mccarthy also on deck. pete: maria great stuff as always we will be watching in 9 minutes and 55 seconds maria thank you so much appreciate it. maria: [laughter] pete: still ahead she cheers on the broncos from the sidelines and now we're cheering her on as she fights on the coronavirus frontlines as a nurse. the nfl cheerleader and critical care nurse doing double duty joins us next. ♪
this virus is testing all of us. and it's testing the people on the front lines of this fight most of all. so abbott is getting new tests into their hands, delivering the critical results they need. and until this fight is over, we...will...never...quit. because they never quit. >> from the sidelines of the football field to the
frontlines of the coronavirus. >> jason: our next guest is a denver broncos cheerleader and an icu nurse treating covid-19 patients in aurora, colorado. pete: the nfl cheerleader and critical care nurse, gabbardriel la windy joins us right now. thank you so much for being here this morning we appreciate it. obviously, you're used to bright lights and big crowds and what you do in cheering on the football field. this is a whole different thing. you're on the frontlines now. we're all grateful for what you're doing. talk to us about how things are going. >> so they're going as well as you could expect. helping treat patients during the pandemic. it was a big learning curve at first, but i would say that we're all kind of getting the hang of it and its becoming a new normal pretty fast, so its becoming more comfortable treating these patients. >> so you see you're actually
working directly with covid-19 patients? >> yes. >> wow that's incredible. so i'm a physician but the nurse s, in my opinion, they carry the weight. they are the ones that keep the ball rolling so it's wonderful that you give your time on the football field and then you're also going and helping on the frontlines with the patients, kudos to you. do you see that you enjoy one over the other? >> i think they are very different so it's hard to really compare them but i do feel like they both give me such a balance in my life and they are different but they also complement one another, so i dancing is my first passion. i've been dancing since i was 12 years old so so i feel incredibly lucky i get to live out my dream day in day out and as an adult starting a career i'm very lucky i found nursing, because i was able to develop a
passion for it kind of in a different way. >> jason: so you wear several different hats. colorado is about to loosen up some of the restrictions. do you think that's the right move and what should people be doing as those restrictions get loosened up? >> you know, i'd like to think that the government and our governor has our best interests in mind, so i think that in times like this , who i'm no one to say what's right and what's wrong, so i choose to just trust in the people who are making those decisions. pete: yeah, you like everybody else, hope people act with personal responsibility and we're grateful to people like you are there to care for those who come on this difficult. gabriella, thank you so much for joining us this morning. >> yes. pete: you got it more fox & friends.
